Sagada Pottery details

Sagada Pottery - Sagada, Mountain Province

Famously known as Sagada Pottery, it is actually a workshop and a gallery of the great pottery artisans of Sagada. First-time visitors would be shocked to find out that the workshop/ gallery is housed in a small almost run-down house a few meters away from Sagada-Besao Road.

It's not only pots... there are mugs too

These are really works of art.

However, this is probably where the saying "Don't judge a book by its cover." is highly applicable. Why? Because after you get turned off with the facade of Sagada Pottery, you would suddenly find yourself amazed with the treasure trove of numerous skillfully crafted pots in the gallery.

The amazement does not end there though, a few more steps would lead you to the workshop. There, an artisan will demonstrate how a master makes the pots. With a price of just P100, you can create your own pot while being guided by the master. Sadly, you won't be able to bring the pot home due to the fact that it needs to be dried and decorated.

If you really want to bring home a souvenir, you can buy a pot from the displays in the gallery. Price ranges from P200+ to more than a thousand pesos. 

Overall, despite the not so appealing infrastructure housing the workshop and the gallery, I still suggest that you visit Sagada Pottery and if you can, bring one of the pots home in support of this local industry.

Sagada Pottery Fees

As mentioned earlier, you need to pay 100 pesos for the pottery-making activity and if you really want to bring home a souvenir, you can buy a pot from the displays in the gallery. Price ranges from P200+ to more than a thousand pesos.
